Leigh Anne Jasheway sleeps with three wiener dogs to scare men away. It’s totally working.
A comedy writer, stand-up comic, and humorous motivational speaker for 25 years (yes, she started in-utero!), Leigh Anne has written 25 books, 18 years of humor columns, buttons, magnets, bumper stickers, ransom notes, excuses, aprons (“Hi, my other apron burned in the fire” is hers), sarcastic comments around chalk outlines, and top 10 lists in the fog on strangers’ bathroom mirrors.
She won the Erma Bombeck Humor Writing Award for her true story on how her first mammogram caught on fire and once hosted her own radio show called The Giggle Spot. Most guys couldn’t find it on the dial.

There are people who visit nude beaches, participate in naked bike rides, or eat their breakfast in the buff with their curtains open (Hi, neighbor. For dog’s sake, please think of the children!)
